•• ━━━━━ ••●•• ━━━━━ ••
Form: Pikachu
Ability: Static
Affiliation: Rogue
Post Involves: Anyone!
•• ━━━━━ ••●•• ━━━━━ ••

The valley of flowers and blooming trees smells sweet and warm as he passes through it, his wanderings from the mountains having finally driven him further to one side of the island to try and seem out what else it had to see. He had worried it would be only more harsh locales but the seemingly endless field left him feeling almost at ease. Occasionally a wave of petals would rise from the grass below when the wind blew and would sweep out over the Savannah in a flurry. The sight was one he couldn't really place anywhere else, and he found himself sitting on a raised hill for a while to watch the wind carry its prizes across the valley. Lost in it.

Something about the flowers and the smell of the grass called to something in him, hinting at memories he no longer had. Perhaps that's why it captivated him so thoroughly over anything else Mautte had shown him so far.

Daniel the Scrafty
Ability: Shed Skin

Ignorance is a very fine silica dust that is dangerous when inhaled.

Daniel's travel to the island's volcano was probably the most dangerous yet.

The volcano, at first glance, presented itself as a mountain, but it had its times that it emitted smoke. Daniel had yet to see it explode, so it could be a sign of its activity. But then, he had only been here for a few sunrises, so he was not exactly a credible source.

Nothing brought Daniel here. Except for the mysterious force that had been pushing him and his feet to travel each inch of the island. It was as if the island was turning him into a traveler, and since he had nothing else to do, he conceded. But his feet had brought him to savannahs and plains. Perhaps the crater somewhere in this island was the most daring before this. But a volcano was something else. Especially when the ground below Daniel's feet was warmer than usual.

Daniel was just above the base of the volcano. The terrain was rocky, with little to no vegetation. Nothing of interest.

But there was something in here for Daniel. Or someone.

Gawain the Type: Null (Battle Armor Ability).
Rogue.
Affected RPers: None.


The mismatched limbs are stiff the instant Gawain rises; the night cold seeped into his helmet and filled it from the inside out, sending chills running down his head and neck. Using his other forms for mundane activities like sleeping and eating seemed like a good way to get more adjusted to them, to demystify them just a bit, but right now Gawain has some regrets. The chimera that he is is a clumsy creature.

It's not all bad, though. He still fits into his nest, for one thing. For another, the strength he feels now is unparalleled. Not even the Manectric has this much brute force available. He wishes he'd been able to use the chimera to build the den; it would've gotten done in...

Well, not half the time. Io had done most of the work on that. And Gawain is still a bit of a klutz in this form, raw power notwithstanding. 

It's a no-win situation, Gawain reflects, sitting down to scratch at an itch beneath his collar, to no avail. He can either stay in his home, a place he knows is sheltered and safe and lonely, or go out and risk exposure or hunger or thirst, or the attacks of hostile Pokemon. It is one, he thinks, of many reasons why things would be better if they were just a little more... centralized.

Now's not really the time for that; there's no one around to preach his philosophy to, anyway. His back paw works a lazy divot into the thick fur around the collar as he watches the sky turn gold with the light of sunrise and ponders options for the day ahead.

Gawain the Sylveon (Cute Charm Ability) -> Gawain the Manectric (Lightning Rod Ability).
Rogue.
Affected RPers: oribhel (Rosen).


This section of the jungle is utterly unrecognizable in the daytime, Gawain thinks.

He came up here for a few reasons; mostly scouting, trying to figure out a good gathering place for the island's inhabitants, somewhere where he can speak to as many Pokemon at once as possible. The longer he traverses this Menagerie, the more certain he is that he hasn't found that place. With the exception of rampaging dragons and Weaviles, it's every bit as riotous as it was last time Gawain was here. Even if it's not useful, it's interesting. 

Hunger makes Gawain's stomach rumble. He noses about through the undergrowth for a few moments, trying to find something edible that won't curl up or shrink away the instant Gawain so much as looks at it wrong. Just some regular berries or roots would be wonderful.

This, Gawain thinks, would be so much easier if I had a better nose. He thinks this, and conceptualizes the most frivolous use of his shapeshifting abilities imaginable. Using the Manectric form to just forage feels a bit silly, but at the same time, he is hungry...

A few minutes later, a Manectric makes his way through the Menagerie, following the sweet smell of Payapa Berries in the near distance.

The strong rains drowned every single inch of Galen's body, and eventually, his mind.

Galen laid flat on the ground, all muddy and specked with grass. His body had no more energy to move away from the forest clearing into the shelters of the trees. The heavy raindrops seeped all of the warmth in his body. These fell down without prejudice, especially as it went straight down Galen's tear-ridden eyes. But he did not do anything about it.

He had given up.

---

Clouds started to form on Galen once he started on his work.

Galen was on the well-known line of Audinos in the forest. They were healers, experts in nursing other Pokemon back to health. In addition, they worked on foot, rushing towards the injured or sick, instead of staying in one place. Their most remarkable tool are the feelers on their tuft-like ears, able to read upon the health status of the patient.

Audinos were easily identified with their pink and cream coloring, the former color seemingly painting them in the shape of a jacket on their abdomen and a cap on their heads. In the forest, where everyone else was the color of leaves or bark, their color had become one with a promise of health.

Galen was different. His fur was gray, like the clouds that hint a storm, and not the pink that had been the symbol of blooming life. In addition, his eyes were a deep blue, as if enriched by nighttime, in contrast to the usual red color of Audino eyes. Even with his irregularities, Galen proved to be an excellent healer, besting those who were older than him.

Galen's future was about to be bright.

But the clouds decided to tease with a sprinkle of rain.

Galen was sent to the southern part of the forest. Rouge bugs, those who were not willing to keep the peace of the forest, had decided to pay a visit by attacking the forest's denizens. On their departure was most of the Bug-type residents inflicted with foreign poison.

It was no hard work for Galen, and the other Audino.

Galen tended to a Caterpie's wounds, a youngling green bug hoping to be a Butterfree, when the other Audino went beside him to heal the Caterpie's sibling. He looked to his right, and the other did so, too.

Galen's eyes met the other's, whose red eyes was a shade as vibrant as the autumn leaves of the forest. "I don't seem to see you around," Galen said.

"Well, you focus too much on your work that you never notice anyone who isn't your patient. And that's when you have someone with you, you loner," the other Audino replied, a twinge of laughter in her voice. "Name's Serena, by the way, Galen."

It was true, Galen thought. He was so independent, and had little to no problem working as is that he was often assigned to far-flung sections of the forest. He was also aware of his lack of social interaction with the other Audinos, he never found the need to do so.

"Nice meeting you then." Galen hoped that was courteous enough. He added a smile, to be sure.

As they continued helping the other residents, Serena was just as dedicated in talking to Galen. Galen was challenged to keep up with her energy, due to his taciturn personality, but he managed to.

With each second, Galen's heart started to bloom like a flower in springtime.

But the rain had started to pour.

Months had passed, each week was full of healers' emergencies, which was a ripe opportunity for Galen and Serena to interact. Both enjoyed the company of each other, as professionals who aimed towards the same goal.

It was the late part of autumntime, where plants and trees start to hide away from the winter cold, but Galen's heart was as warm and blooming as ever. It was as if he wanted to protect Serena from all the wounds and the pains of the world, and heal her existing ones.

Galen and Serena were in the middle of the forest clearing, enjoying the warm glow of the fall sunset as they sat down on the ground.

"Serena," Galen said, maintaining his calm.

"Yes, Galen?" Serena faced her companion. "You seem a bit shaken. Is there anything wrong?"

It's now or never, Galen thought. "Far from it. I just thought of the times when I had nothing on my mind but work and the health of my patients. Being a healer is a fulfilling task, everytime I see people smile, knowing they will live for longer, my heart glows.

"But my heart is now glowing even brighter. I feel like I could breathe even deeper. There is a sense of happiness that I get every single moment now, and it feels so new. And all I could trace this feeling is from the time our eyes met.

"Your passion was in your eyes then, and I felt it so much that I wanted to improve myself. And so I did, in every single moment we are together. I wish that I could continue to be better, but now as we hold our hands and our fate together.

"I hope that my future shall be with you, until the end of our lives." Galen's heart started to tremble, as it filled with waiting for Serena's reaction.

Tears started to form in Serena's eyes, which glistened in the autumn sun. "When I first saw you, you were so focused on your work that I couldn't get the chance to speak to you. You were so excellent in your healing that I looked up to you, and wanted to learn under your wing. But everything in you back then intimidated me so much that I couldn't do anything.

"But when we first truly met, I realized that what you, and in hindsight, we needed was a friend. And after that I started to see you as someone like any other. You needed something, too. You needed someone who is always by your side. Nobody ever realized that you were not completely independent.

"As time passed, we melded together. Not just as co-workers who helped each other, but as someone who needed support on the inside. We were holding on to each other without us knowing about it.

"Now, that I know you share the same feelings as mine, I couldn't be happier. Especially that we have grown together, and I will look forward to doing so in our future." Serena sealed her words with a hug towards Galen.

Their moment of love was carried by the wind, along with the leaves and the warmth of the breeze.

But the rain was joined by the roar of thunder and spikes of lightning.

The southern forest was attacked again, but now by a horde of Shiinotic, humanoid mushrooms with an enigmatic power. Their spores terrorized the forest's inhabitants and Galen and Serena, who were not expecting a fight. Audinos were primarily healers, but they were armed with skills to defend themselves. But the two had to be extra careful against inhaling the spores.

"Ahh!" The scream came from Serena's direction.

Galen turned around as he finished dealing with one, as it hurried away from him, and saw Serena pinned into a tree. The Shiinotic had murder in its eyes, and it released a new cloud of spores against the helpless Audino. The spore was foreign to Galen's knowledge, it shimmered pink, but its shade seemed malicious.

"Now we'll see if you'll ever try healing again!" the Shiinotic said, as it freed Serena and ran.

But Galen was faster, fueled with fury. From his arm he sent out a punch that grew green needles, a product of his Secret Power. It was a helpful move among Audinos who needed to defend themselves. The Shiinotic was hit, but did not stagger at all.

"Ha! I'd stay and fight you, but I'd rather enjoy the thought of having inflicted someone with my new toxic spores," the enemy said, as it released another set of spores, white this time. It was safe, Galen knew, but was dense enough to hinder sight. The last Shiinotic had escaped.

Galen went towards Serena and held her hand for support. "Are you okay?"

"Yes," she replied. "What was that spore? I don't feel anything weird."

"I don't know either. Perhaps it was nothing, he was just saying nonsense."

Ignorance was bliss, indeed.

And the rain finally turned itself into a full-fledged storm.

Serena fell down, breathing deeply but seemed not to be refreshed at all.

The rouge Shiinotics attacked again, this time they had the nerve to inavde the central section of the forest, where Galen and Serena resided. The two missed the enemies, they worked somewhere else before arriving, and they quickly went into work mode.

But something was amiss this time around.

The night sky brough cold winds, which did not help Serena's breathing. A while ago, Galen swore she was okay, perhaps the exhaustion from having to deal with a larger population took a toll on her. Serena had breathing problems lately and neither the two of them could trace its source. Galen's power did nothing, but rest was enough for Serena.

"Are you okay?" Galen asked, worry seeping on his voice. "You're having those fits of breathlessness again!"

Serena wheezed. "Can't. Breathe." Her breathing was more laborious than before.

"Just lie down and breathe, okay?"

"No. Throat's... getting tighter."

Galen tried to stay calm. With his hands, he tried to summon his healing powers. It glowed white, as it always had been, but he had forgotten that it was not effective on Serena's condition. His own heart was struck with grief over his own stupidity.

Serena's coughing worsened. In each cough, Galen could see pink specks coming out of her mouth. His mind was too busy trying to save Serena.

Serena's coughing worsened even more. With each sound, Galen's hand started to shake and his mind started to blur. He could not think. He could only hold her hand.

Serena seemed to say something, but her coughs came out in rapid succession. More pink powder went out of her every cough. Until it stopped suddenly.

And so did her breathing.

Galen's mind was both a blur, a mess, and a tranquil sea all at once. He knew what had happened. With his shaking hands, he laid down Serena and closed her eyes.

The storm unleashed its all. And Galen could only do nothing but run.

He ran, the strong pelts of raindrops against his, in no particular direction. But he found himself in a familiar location.

The forest's clearing.

The strong rains drowned every single inch of Galen's body, and eventually, his mind.

Galen laid flat on the ground, all muddy and specked with grass. His body had no more energy to move away from the forest clearing into the shelters of the trees. The heavy raindrops seeped all of the warmth in his body. These fell down without prejudice, especially as it went straight down Galen's tear-ridden eyes. But he did not do anything about it.

After all, he could not do anything to save Serena. He could no longer have the future he wanted to have with her. He could no longer be a better person. He could no longer dedicate his work for her.

But he could drown himself in his emotions and by the pouring waters. He no longer saw the need to breathe.

He had given up.

Miki's back in the jungle yet again. She's exploring an area she hasn't quite explored yet, and she's already lost between the trees.

Eventually, she makes the decision to climb upward, and soon enough Miki's autumnal leaves peek out of the green foliage of the treetops to spot a massive, sprawling, singular tree that towers over the rest.

She resolves to set off in that direction, and makes her way down towards the ground, trying to keep her sense of direction straight and hopefully make it to the base of the tree as quickly as she can.

Miki's back in the jungle. Although she subsists solely on photosynthesis and thus technically doesn't need to eat, she is in fact in the mood for having something to taste other than water.

Also, Allen had to remind her that she was supposed to be here to meet Rosen. Miki's kind of forgetful.

"Hmm, this place looks nice," she muses. She turns to the nearest tree, starts to climb up the branches, and when she reaches a satisfactory height, she looks out over the area. She spots a bush with berries growing from it, scurries down the tree and over to the bush, and tries to cut a single branch with a berry  off with a Leaf Blade, using the leaf on her head. Might as well get something first, right?

The view before is a breathtaking difference to the dull, silent woods just a ways back from where I stand. The natural gardens before me are filled to the brim with flowers in full bloom, lighting up the earth as the sunlight dances off their vibrant petals. The trees in the area are equally a sight to behold, their aged wooden stems curling around the flowers like dragons protecting their jewels. From just a glance at the forest I know exactly what I want here. Roots, berries, apples from the trees, but most of all....

Honey. A sweet golden delicacy that'll absolutely come in handy when cooking any type of meal. It looks like I could extract some nectar from a couple of the larger flowers as well. My mouth cracks into a grin as I think about collecting all of these beautiful resources....


  Sol Kong
Posted by: Dekrueger - Yesterday, 12:29 AM - Forum: Character Applications - No Replies

Name: Sol Kong
Age: Young Adult
Personality: An ambition and arrogant soul who is as mischievous as he is (selectively) benevolent.  Only those beneath Sol- whether they be weaker or otherwise dependant on him- are deserving of his mercy. Those who receive that luxury however will be spoiled by his loyalty; they will be considered one of his subjects who will be defended and provided for to the best of his abilities.  When it comes to neutral parties and authority figures however… that’s all out the window.  Those around Sol who act as his peers are subject to his whimsical nature as a prankster and vandal. Those who presume themselves above him are instead the subject of his ire, and he will often treat them with open defiance or even hostility until he has proven himself an equal. 

Available Forms:

Species: Infernape
Gender: Male
Form Type: Imported
Abilities:

  • Blaze - The power of this form’s fire moves burn brightest and hottest in times of peril.  This applies when proverbially backed into a corner during fighting, when the bearer is running only on adrenaline.
  • Iron Fist - This form packs a much greater punch than its wiry physique would suggest.  This grants Sol a bit more ‘oomph’ for tasks such as lifting heavy objects or delivering physical blows.  There are limits however.  For example, while Sol might be able to lift boulders, he wouldn’t be able to throw them more than a few feet.
Appearance: The skin of this form- namely anywhere not covered by fur- is a somewhat deeper red than as is normal for an Infernape.  The coloration can be thought of as a median between a regular and Shiny form.  Additionally this form stands taller than the average Infernape at roughly 5 feet tall.
